11 Best Dunkin’ Munchkin Flavors to Try

Dunkin Donuts Munchkins are iconic. They’re delicious, bite-sized donut holes perfect for a grab-and-go snack and even better when a friend or coworker shows up with a whole box to share.

Occasionally Dunkin’ will offer seasonal Munchkins, like the pink Berry Powdered Munchkin in the summer or Pumpkin Munchkins in the fall, but for most of the year, they stick to the classic flavors.

Not all Dunkin locations will have all classic flavors available, though they’ll most likely carry at least the Glazed and Chocolate Glazed Munchkins.

In this article, we’ve rounded up the best Dunkin Munchkin flavors, including all classic flavors and a few seasonal options.

Keep reading to find out our top picks and see where your favorite Munchkin ranks!

11. Old Fashioned Munchkins

The Old Fashioned is one of the best regular-sized donuts at Dunkin’, but the Old Fashioned Munchkins fall short for some reason.

If you’ve recently shared a box of Munchkins with friends, chances are there were a few of these lingering at the bottom of the box after everything else was eaten.

The Old Fashioned Munchkins are plain donut holes made from Dunkin’s cake donut batter.

Unlike most Dunkin’s donuts, their cake donuts are leavened with baking soda rather than yeast.

They are crispy on the outside but dense and tender on the inside.

One Old Fashioned Munchkin has 50 calories, 3g of fat, 2g of sugar, and 1g of protein.

It contains common allergens milk, wheat, soy, and eggs.

10. Powdered Munchkins

It may seem like we’re doing a disservice to powdered donuts by placing them this far down on the list, but remember, we’re talking about Munchkins here. We want to like them – we really do!

They’re adorable little snowballs of classic-flavored donut joy, but the reality of Powdered Munchkins is that they’re just too dry.

The coating-to-donut ratio just isn’t the same as on the powdered donut.

We’re still definitely going to eat all of these; we just might need some extra coffee to help wash them down.

Powdered Munchkins are donut holes made from Dunkin’s fluffy yeast donut dough. They’re coated in powdered sugar.

One Powdered Munchkin has 60 calories, 3.5g of fat, 2g of sugar, and 1g of protein.

It contains common allergens eggs, wheat, soy, and milk.

9. Berry Powdered Munchkins (Seasonal)

The Berry Powdered Munchkins are only available at certain Dunkin’ locations during the summer.

If you’ve yet to stumble across them, don’t be too upset – they’re definitely pretty, but they’re nowhere near the best Munchkins flavor.

The berry powder adds a subtle sweet/tart fruit flavor that doesn’t taste bad but doesn’t really improve the base donut much.

That said, they’re very photogenic – especially when paired with a Dunkin Refresher.

Berry Powdered Munchkins are made from Old Fashioned Munchkins tossed in a pink, berry-flavored powdered sugar coating.

Some Dunkin fans have reported finding them made from Glazed Blueberry Munchkins, though that’s not standard.

8. Cinnamon Munchkins

While Cinnamon Munchkins tend to be a little dry, they’re a bit denser than the Powdered Munchkins and won’t stick to the roof of your mouth quite as much.

The cinnamon flavor is nice, and these make a great afternoon snack, especially alongside a chai latte or cappuccino.

Cinnamon Munchkins are essentially Old Fashioned Munchkins rolled in a cinnamon sugar coating.

One Cinnamon Munchkin has 60 calories, 3.5g of fat, 2g of sugar, and 1g of protein.

It contains common allergens wheat, eggs, milk, and soy.

7. Pumpkin Munchkins (Seasonal)

Pumpkin-flavored pastries and coffee drinks are often one of the first signs of fall, even before the leaves have begun to change and the air has begun to cool.

While Pumpkin Munchkins are a cute seasonal treat and a welcome addition to an assorted box, there are better (full-sized) seasonal donuts available on Dunkin’s menu.

Pumpkin Munchkins are tasty, but they’re not making it to the top half of this list.

They are seasonal donut holes made from spiced pumpkin-flavored cake donut dough and coated in sugar glaze.

6. Chocolate Butternut Munchkins (Seasonal)

Dunkin’s elusive Chocolate Butternut Munchkins are among the best non-classic flavored Munchkins, but they can be difficult to find.

Many stores don’t carry them, and some only offer them seasonally.

If you can get your hands on some, you’ll be treated to a delicious chocolatey bite covered in a slightly-crunchy buttery coating.

Chocolate Butternut Munchkins are chocolate cake donut holes.

They’re covered in glaze and coated in Dunkin’s coconut and sugar-based butternut topping.

5. Glazed Old Fashioned Munchkins

Now we’re getting somewhere! It’s incredible what a coating of sugary glaze can do regarding combating dryness in Munchkins.

Glazed Old Fashioned Munchkins are cake donut holes coated in sugar glaze.

They’re crispy and sweet on the outside and dense and rich on the inside.

These are the perfect old-school one-bite treat and taste better than their unglazed counterparts!

One Glazed Old Fashioned Munchkin has 70 calories, 3g of fat, 4g of sugar, and 1g of protein.

It contains common allergens soy, milk, eggs, and wheat.

4. Glazed Blueberry Munchkins

While Glazed Blueberry Munchkins are standard in many stores, you might not find them everywhere.

They’re always a welcome treat if you can get your hands on some.

Glazed Blueberry Munchkins are soft, cakey donut holes studded with tiny pieces of blueberry and draped in a sugar glaze.

These Munchkins are sweet and fruity morsels that are impossibly tender and almost melt in your mouth.

They’re especially perfect for breakfast!

One Glazed Blueberry Munchkin has 60 calories, 2.5g of fat, 5g of sugar, and 1g of protein.

It contains common allergens milk, eggs, wheat, and soy.

3. Jelly Munchkins

Jelly is one of the best Dunkin’ Munchkin flavors.

In fact, Jelly Munchkins are considerably better than their donut counterpart because they’re not nearly as messy and have a much more manageable filling-to-donut ratio.

They’re fluffy and sweet and will probably be among the earliest flavors to disappear from the box.

Jelly Munchkins are soft, fluffy donut holes made from Dunkin’s yeast dough.

They’re filled with fruity jelly that tastes like a combination of apple and raspberry.

The Munchkins are then tossed in a coating of powdered sugar.

One Jelly Munchkin has 60 calories, 3g of fat, 3g of sugar, and 1g of protein.

It contains common allergens eggs, milk, soy, and wheat.

2. Glazed Chocolate Munchkins

There are two types of people in the world: people who love chocolate and people who are wrong.

One of the best Dunkin Munchkin flavors is the Glazed Chocolate Munchkin.

It’s a soft, bite-sized chocolatey treat that tastes like glazed devil’s food cake.

Whether it takes two Munchkins or ten to get your daily chocolate fix is up to you; just know that you’ll enjoy each chocolatey bite.

Snack on these while strolling down the street with one of Dunkin’s iced coffees in hand.

1. Glazed Munchkins

There’s just something about the Glazed Munchkins.

Whether it’s their soft texture or sweet, simple flavor, they always manage to edge out all other flavors and take their place at the top.

Glazed Munchkins are soft, fluffy donut holes made from Dunkin’s yeasted donut dough and coated in sugar glaze.

They’re pillowy soft, and slightly larger than most other Munchkins, and the glaze provides just the right amount of sweetness and textural contrast.

While they may be simple, Glazed Munchkins are definitely addictive, which makes them the best Dunkin’ Munchkin flavor.

One Glazed Munchkin has 60 calories, 3g of fat, 3g of sugar, and 1g of protein.
